Russian police arrest Kremlin opponent at rally

Russian police have arrested a leading Kremlin opponent at a demonstration demanding freedom of assembly.



Moscow: Russian police have arrested a
leading Kremlin opponent at a demonstration demanding freedom
of assembly.

Around 100 protesters were in a central Moscow square
chanting "Freedom! Freedom!" in today`s rally, which the
authorities tried to ban.

An agency’s reporter saw Boris Nemtsov, a fierce
Kremlin critic, dragged to a police car and driven away. The
rally had barely started. Three or four others appeared to
have been detained.

Police forming a human chain were closing in on the
remaining protesters.

Kremlin opponents are holding rallies on the last day of
each month with 31 days, a nod to the Constitution`s Article
31, which guarantees the right to peaceful assembly. Moscow
authorities rarely give formal permission for them to go
ahead.
